mkhomedir_helper

Helper binary that creates home directories

SYNOPSIS

' mkhomedir_helper 'u mkhomedir_helper { user }[ umask [ path-to -skel ]]

DESCRIPTION

mkhomedir_helper is a helper program for the pam_mkhomedir module that creates home directories and populates them with contents of the specified skel directory .

The default value of umask is 0022 and the default value of path-to -skel is /etc/skel .

The helper is separated from the module to not require direct access from login SELinux domains to the contents of user home directories . The SELinux domain transition happens when the module is executing the mkhomedir_helper .

The helper never touches home directories if they already exist .
